Hi, I was wondering if anyone could translate the following latin phrase for me:

"Ora lege relege labora et invenies."

Anyone know?

Something to do with alchemy, sayeth my Google search.

"ORA, LEGE, LEGE, LEGE, RELEGE, LABORA ET INVENIES", declares the motto of the Mutus Liber of 1677, "Pray, Read, Read, Read, Read Again, Work and You Shall Find".

Pray, read, reread and you shall find.

That's my guess.


(You could just google it, donchaknow.)

That's all I did :D - albeit mainly because I was curious about the origin.
